CHEVY CHASE, Md., March 16, 2016 (hospitalitybusinessnews.com) — The Ritz-Carlton Hotel Company, L.L.C., announced plans to unveil its first Ritz-Carlton Reserve resort in Bermuda in 2018. The resort will operate under a long term management agreement with George’s Bay Hotel Ltd. and George’s Bay Residences Ltd. The announcement marks a significant milestone for the development of Ritz-Carlton Reserve in the Caribbean and Latin America. The project will represent the third Reserve location to open in the region, following the celebrated opening of Dorado Beach, a Ritz-Carlton Reserve in 2012 and the expected opening of Puerto Los Cabos, Ritz-Carlton Reserve in 2018.
Located in an area of historical significance on the western end of Bermuda, the site offers over 2.5 miles of shoreline and includes an expansive peninsula extending into the Great Sound.
“We have watched Bermuda as a destination closely for many years and believe the timing has never been better to introduce what will be a one of a kind, luxury experience to the island,” said Herve Humler, president and chief operating officer of The Ritz-Carlton. “We are delighted to work with such an esteemed partner as George’s Bay Hotel Ltd. and we are confident that this resort will offer the most sophisticated travelers an exciting new destination to experience through the eyes of Ritz-Carlton Reserve.”
“This collaboration resonates with the vision that we have for our development and we are thrilled that this stunning setting lends itself to the Reserve promise of sophistication, seclusion and engaging experiences,” offered Craig Christensen, president & chief operating officer of Morgan’s Point Ltd., the holding company of George’s Bay Hotel Ltd. and George’s Bay Residences Ltd. “This announcement, combined with the confidence of The Ritz-Carlton in our beautiful island is meaningful to all Bermudians, as it helps to elevate the allure of the destination and enhance the future of tourism.”
Inspired by the notion that the concept of luxury is ever-changing, Ritz-Carlton Reserve is brought to life by its deep focus on elements that speak fluently to connoisseurs of experience. Currently offering three ultra-luxurious, highly personalized and intimate experiences, Ritz-Carlton Reserve was created for guests who measure wealth by the richness of their experiences and yearn for true escape. Ritz-Carlton Reserve is currently represented by Phulay Bay in the village of Krabi, Thailand, Dorado Beach, a Ritz-Carlton Reserve in Puerto Rico, and this past September celebrated the opening of the highly anticipated Mandapa, a Ritz-Carlton Reserve in Ubud, Bali.
